Stayed for 3 nights & it was perfect. Gill & Bill are delightful & so helpful. The location is stunning, our room was beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, Gill & Bill had thought of everything even down to little details like an umbrella in case it rained. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice, cereals, fruit & an excellent choice... More

When we go on holiday we always say that we don't want to be less comfortable than we would be at home. Our delightful hosts made sure that everything was above our expectations and all their little extra touches made our stay exceptional. The large terrace with sea view was an added bonus. Thanks a lot Gill and Bill.

My husband and I travelled around Scotland for two weeks this month and stayed in many hotels and B&Bs. Water's Edge was our favorite. The house has been beautifully renovated and decorated. Our room was comfortable and luxurious, as well as immaculate, and had a big bathroom. We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the large balcony, with... More

We chose to stay here after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Water's Edge surpassed our expectations. Bill and Gill are wonderful hosts, friendly but very relaxed. We stayed two nights in room 2 and greedily drunk in the view from our balcony. Yes, the weather was dry and mostly sunny while we were there but that merely enhanced our... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights, holidaying on the Black Isle and watching the dolphins. It was a luxurious experience. We had a wonderful room with a fabulous, large balcony and an amazing view across the garden to the shore and over the sea. So many additional touches around the home that made everything more enjoyable. Bill and... More

Everything is said in all of the other 5 star reviews - this wonderful B&B surpasses all expectation and has to be experienced first hand. Thank you Bill and Gill - no other bath will ever be good enough for my daughter!

My favourite place to stay on our recent 12 nights away. Lovely owners, beautiful rooms, lovely views, totally gorgeous. The owners seem to have thought of everything, even a tot of whisky for you to take to bed with you if you choose. Sadly the weather turned when we arrived so we could not take advantage of the lovely verandahs... More

Lovely spacious room with a large balcony with table that looked out over the Firth. Everything was immaculate. Parking is available. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Very luxurious B&B. We had a nice large room with an excellent bathroom including victorian bath tub. The view from the balcony out to sea is beautiful and you can sit outside and enjoy the view!

I never stay in bed and breakfast accommodation, I always stay in hotels but decided to give this B & B a try when in Scotland to visit Morray Firth and watch wild dolphins. It was the best decision I could possibly have made. This accommodation is exceptional. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, immaculate and luxurious. The thing that... More
